An Illustrated Guide.
By George J. Tanabe and Willa Jane Tanabe.
A fascinating look at Buddhist temples of various denominations in Hawai'i. Rich narratives with more than three hundred and fifty color photographs provide the reader with historical information, descriptions of architecture, sanctuaries, statuary and ritual implements, columbariums, and grounds. This book serves not only as an introduction to Buddhism and guidebook, but also as an invaluable historical record of what exists today and what may be gone tomorrow. BCA readers will be inspired to look more closely at our own temples, to appreciate details that may have escaped our attention, and to understand their meaning.
